As I’ve gotten older, I’ve become equally invested in fashion and home décor. These days, discovering a chic new pair of leather boots excites me just as much as buying a new dining chair or an espresso machine for my kitchen. (It was bound to happen eventually.) And this fall, I’m looking for a little refresh in both departments. While I may be a pro in the fashion space, I’m still developing my interior-design aesthetic, so I regularly look to those who are more established in the décor game. Enter: Kathryn Zahorak, a Los Angeles–based content creator, actress, and writer who’s known on Instagram for her effortlessly cool style and dreamy aesthetic. Just peep her Instagram, and you’ll find style and interior-design inspiration galore (whether it’s in her own home or places she’s visited). So naturally, I wanted to get the lowdown on where she’s shopping for new pieces … Read more

There are plenty—and we really do mean plenty—of new boot trends to relish in. Slouchy boots have been reigning supreme, cowboy boots are back and bolder than ever, snakeskin booties are the best way to wear the ever-popular animal-print trend, and square-toe boots that hearken back to the ’90s have become increasingly sought-after. But regardless of all the new, fresh footwear crazes the season has ushered in, there’s one timeless style that simply can’t be beat: Chelsea boots.
The appeal of Chelsea boots is in their ever-versatile, no-fuss design. They’re close-fitting, hit at the ankle, and have that signature elastic side panel that’s both practical and stylish. They also tend to have a loop or stretchy fabric on the back, both design details that make slipping in and out of them incredibly easy, which is a huge plus because, well, no one likes trying to cram their foot into … Read more
I don’t think anyone would disagree when I say that our fast-paced lives have so many implications for our fashion choices. On the one hand, we’ve never been more connected on a global scale than we are now. The fact that a writer like me in New York can publish a story about what people are wearing in Milan the same day or uncover an emerging Latin-owned brand and shout it out to the world is a beautiful thing. But on the other hand, we consume and wear new trends faster than ever, and it’s often at the detriment of understanding the context that brought said fashion trend to life (aka its backstory).
So today, we’re taking a closer look at the cultural history behind several now-famous fashion items—each of which has roots in Latin culture. It’s not to say that the following nine pieces only originated from Latin culture, … Read more
Skincare can be a challenging category to navigate. Even as a beauty editor, I get overwhelmed trying to figure out what skincare products actually work and which premium beauty brands are really worth the money. There has never been so much choice when it comes to shopping for skincare. And while this can be a great thing, it can also make choosing—and finding—products that work for your own skin type and concerns quite tricky.
Scrolling through social media, you’ll often find influencers and beauty lovers raving about their favorite skincare products and brands. While we love a word-of-mouth recommendation, what works for one person might not necessarily work for you. And as a result, you might accumulate products that end up gathering dust that are not suited for your skin, leaving a big hole in your wallet, too. After all, the pretty packaging of an expensive product may draw … Read more
